Top Ten Tuesday – Books This Year

Since it’s the start of June and almost halfway through the year (!) there couldn’t be a better time for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic, which I’m going to use as a kind of recap of this year in Literature. I’ve read a lot of great books this year so this Top Ten Books I’ve Read This Year list will be rather easy. Well, hopefully…

In no particular order my Top Ten are:

Fathers and Sons – Ivan Turgenev

Poor Folk – Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Rubicon – Tom Holland

Agnes Grey – Anne Bronte

Inferno – Dante

The Plague – Albert Camus

Animal Farm – George Orwell

The Theban Plays – Sophocles

The Book of Sand – Jorge Luis Borges

Persuasion – Jane Austen

I won’t add descriptions since I did a major post about most of these but I will say that so far this year I have read books that I will carry with me for a lifetime. I’ve enjoyed every book I’ve read, some more than others, but I have enjoyed them all.

    1. Thanks! Ahh I loved the Plague it was incredibly moving and such an enjoyable experience. Can’t wait until I read the Stranger by Albert Camus.

    1. It’s one of my new favourites, and definitely my favourite Austen. I checked your list out I don’t think I’ve read any of them but they look interesting. I’ll have to check them out.

  1. Horray for Agnes Grey! That’s one of my favorites, though I didn’t realize how much I liked it until time passed and it stayed with me. 🙂
